Civil Ground Works

We do Civil Ground works, which is the preparation of the soil mattress created by using large amounts of G5 compacted together to form the base of the Raft Foundation.''Geotechnical engineering is an area of civil engineering concerned with the rock and soil that civil engineering systems are supported by. Knowledge from the fields of geology, material science and testing, mechanics, and hydraulics are applied by geotechnical engineers to safely and economically design foundations, retaining walls, and similar structures.

Environmental concerns in relation to groundwater and waste disposal  have spawned a new area of study called: geo-environmental engineering where biology and chemistry are important. Some of the unique difficulties of geotechnical engineering are the result of the variability and properties of soil. Boundary conditions are often well defined in other branches of civil engineering,but with soil, clearly defining these conditions can be impossible. The material properties and behavior of soil are also difficult to predict due to the variability of soil and limited investigation.

This contrasts with the relatively well defined material properties of steel and concrete used in other areas of civil engineering. Soil mechanics, which define the behavior of soil, is complex due to stress-dependent material
